  4. A good build by karma831 for under $700.
  5. Can you please also recommend a power supply.
  6. That is a great build recommended by Karma. Also, the power supply is included in a combo deal with the video card. Karma's build has everything your son will need to play WOW at very nice settings.
  7. Thank you all for the help!!!
  8. Sorry one last question, do I also need to order a wireless card? If I do, can you recommend one. I have an N wireless router.
  9. You would only need a wireless card if the PC is in a different room than the internet access. In which case, you would want one so you have access to the internet.

    If you have the PC in the same room as the internet access, I would just run a Ethernet cable from the router to the Ethernet port on the PC. This is the easiest way to hook it up.
  10. Can you recommend a wireless card for an N network?
  11. Thank you all for the help. The machine is up and running and works great. My son could not be happier!
